Frank, Thanks for the welcome! I hate to say this, but Pierce's is one of my least favorite bbq joints. But that is because I am kind of a one dimensional (vinegar/pepper cue) addict. I know lots of folks around the Peninsula drive up there but I just never got into it. But I would assume it's about the same as ever. Where 'bouts are you located? JB


My favorite is the eastern NC w/ vinegar/pepper sauce too. Pierce's has/had a pretty good following over the years. They opened one in downtown Richmond a few years ago but it didn't last. It seems to me that the pork is a little too dry or something nowadays.

I'm in rural Powhatan County, VA, about 35 miles west of Richmond.

Oops: (edit) I meant to say WELCOME to Farfromhome too!

I think the dryness comes from being bred to the current frenzy for low-fat everything. It just doesn't help with pork, and beef producers have gotten around that with the grading system that places marbling as a component of the higher grades!

Rick:

I agree about the low fat thing. The Other White Meat is a red flag (to me).

Secondly, and I'm not a grammarian, however is the word "but" as a rejoinder here (as in, "but you'll meet a lot of nice people here") some type of gang-code for saying, "ignore the rubes that are i95, Grampy and Ort. All three are quite mentally ill"?


Just curious.

Curious (aka i95),

Any grammar mistakes are unintentional, since it's one of the
subjects I detest the most along with any form of science and
advanced calculus, among others

That will be the subject for the next poll on the homepage:

minds long ago)

Naw, it means seek out these three for spice and entertainment. And on a nutritional note--studies show nuts are an important part of a healthy diet-so long as it's just a handful...anyway, I'll introduce myself now. I'm Leslie G. and fairly new to this forum. I live in Clarksville, in the state of Middle Tennessee. Originally from the state of East Tennessee. I am a part time teacher (drama) and occasionaly I act for love or money -whichever is available. I love food, always will. Give me a festival with Shakespeare and a corn dog, and I'm in heaven! Thanks to those who welcomed me when I first started posting and welcome to all of y'all who come to this site.

hey Leslie,
Come out and visit us sometime in Southern Oregon. Lots of Shakespeare, and another 10 or 11 other theatre companies in a town of 20,000. Not many corndogs in Ashland though.

Just got a review from a friend of mine who loves Pierce's BBQ in Williamsburg. She went over the weekend and declared it was as good as it ever was! Judy

Hey Bill,
I have heard alot about Oregon Shakes' and I've got friends who have worked there. They loved it! Never having ventured farther than Salt Lake City, I know I am due a tour of the west coast. I plan for it in my near future. Ashland will be a sure bet. Thanks, Leslie G.

.... Leslie, since your hubster just quit, you should pack the cat and dog and him and take a sabattical. Ashland proper has about 75 eating spots, so you wouldn't be bored. I've almost got kristi S. convinced to get a summer home here.(when she wins the lottery)

PS: where did your parents come from in Missouri? My grandmother's recipes all have a distinctly southern flavor. (I'm from KC) and Mr. Bushie is a born, but only partly bred, Missourian. Darn fool moved to TEXAS!

Bill, That sounds...well, that sounds wonderful. I'll be googling Ashland, I assure you.

My mom was born in St. Joe. They moved around alot... St. Louis, Wentzville, a farm in Troy.
My dad was born in Monett. They moved around alot also from Monett to Texas to Florida and then wound up back in Monett. My grandfathers moved often because one was a salesman and the other a dreamer and an artist. (He like to raise animals and citrus. He loved Belgian draft horses and believed that the tractor was just a fad and would soon be discarded. He was all set to make a killing with the Belgian. Oh, well. That's why they ended up back home in Monett. Later when he retired he moved to Rattlesnake, FL where he pursued painting and started wearing a beret. Now, the family I have left in Missouri live in Wentzville, Springfield, Columbia and St.Louis. They used to tease me and call me a hillbilly and... did we wear shoes in Tennessee?
I love em alot.

St. Joe! Cherry Mash City! My sister, who also lives out here rhapsodizes about once a month how this would be a perfect place if we could get Cherry Mash and Valomilks, while ignoring our regional prize Idaho Spud Bars, + all the Annebelle's & See's candies from SF. The most endearing quality of the theatre scene in S.O. is it's "Andy & Judy" put on a play quality, despite drawing 500,000+ a year to watch plays. We used to live next to one of the company actors, (from Texas, by the way; why I thought of you), who worked here, left to pursue fame and fortune, and returned for the oppourtunity to be part of a company and live in a spectacular enviornment. They hire a bunch of new people every year, so don't hesitate to contact them+most of the other companies in town are equity also.

Bill B. and Zattar are also KC ( Mo.side) natives, but I don't know whether they share similar southern cooking roots. They both like BBQ, though! The funny thing is, we always describe Oregon as -"Missouri mixed with California", so you'd feel right at home.

Yup, Local 26, West Michigan. I must say, it's VERY cool to have someone not only know what a stagehand is, but know the International. I know several people who have played New Haven, but I've never been there myself.


How funny, I too worked on permit many times in Fresno setting up and tearing down various shows at the convention center there. It was a blast to see the show go together and then tear it all apart.

Greetings all!

I'm a fellow foodie or roadie or road foodie who has just joined . . . Dad was Navy, so there was a little moving around when I was a small fry, then the folks settled in Norfolk, VA. Both parents are from the deep south (Mom from Atlanta and Dad from Arkansas), so it just seemed natural for me to head to Atlanta after university. My folks exposed me to some great home cooking (greens, beans with fatback, cornbread, grits) and LOTS of road trips (three weeks every summer) down south. After 10 years of soaking up that deep southern culture, I took a new job and headed north of the Mason/Dixon line to Boston. I've been up here 5 years now and am lovin' every minute of it. I'm being exposed to a very different style of regional cooking and food, as well as a diversity of ethnic foods that I never thought I would have the opportunity to taste (Tibetan, Afghani).

I owe my love of "road food" to my parents, who avoided the interstate and fast food in our travels and introduced my siblings and me to old non-chain motels (e.g., the Peachtree Inn), diners, and truck stops along state highways.

I love to cook. I have a huge cookbook collection and have even taken courses from a local culinary school. But I love to eat even more, especially in local diners or truck stops. I haven't had a chance yet to explore the entire site, but I can't wait to read the reviews and even add some of my own.

I found this forum by doing a web search for a tex-mex recipe :)

I have 3 daughters, and we love to cook as well as try new places as well as foods. My husband travels extensively on his job, and he particularly enjoys the restaurant reviews!


How's the breakfasts at the Saugus Cafe these days?

Greetings from south Texas. I live in the greater San Antonio area
and have been using Road Food when I travel for years. I've also read the forum, but just got around to registering myself.
Finding unique local cuisines and mom'n'pop restaurants is one of the joys of travelling!
If anyone plans to visit the San Antonio area, let me know and I'd be happy to give you some tips about where the locals eat and what overrated places to avoid.
I'll be travelling to California next month and will be in the Ventura/Ojai area and in the Palm Springs area, and also the so-called "inland empire", so any recommendations are welcome (I did
do a search of old references to these areas via the forum search engine).
If you happen to be in the northeast section of San Antonio,
I would recommend Louie LeDeaux Cajun Seafood in the Forum
(near junction of 35 and 1604), or for Thai, try the Thai Cafe on Nacogdoches or the Bangkok Cuisine on Pat Booker Rd.
When in the city itself, the tacos are fantastic at Cristan's on San Pedro, just south of San Antonio College and just north of I-35.
The chilaquiles tacos (they serve both chilaquiles and migas tacos--the chilaquiles ones have more peppers in them) and chicharron tacos are my favorites, and their green salsa will make your eyes water.
They also serve slow-cooked lengua tacos, with onion, that the lengua fan will like (I do, but the rest of my family doesn't want to watch me eating them!). Cristan's even has a convenient drive-thru! There are small mom'n'pop Mexican restaurants on almost every corner in San Antonio, so those with the money or the time could take a "Mexican food trip" to San Antonio and eat three meals a day for a month without repeating any restaurant...

Bill S.

ps, where are those Krystals in Austin going to be????

To EdSails:

It was actually pretty good! We were pretty leary of trying it as the area looks like it has seen better days but the food was actually very good and the other patrons on hearing our accents gave us the complete history of the Saugus Cafe.

Hey ya'll!
I've been hanging around here a little bit since I started looking for places to eat while on vacation to Alaska (where I got to meet their Unofficial Ambassador, Roadfood Division, lleechef). I'm usually around in the middle of the night EST because of my working hours, I'm from the sort-of vicinity of OrtCarltonland,and I love eatin' an' cookin, with strong opinions on both. I didn't see this section of the forums before today, but now that I do...

Howdy - I am Charlotte. I am from Lubbock, TX and live in Austin now. My friend Holly introduced me to this site..and LAW! I am grateful.
Spent a lot of time in living in other places and working in the food and berverage industry. Miss the fantastic stuff in NorCal. But Austin is slowly catching up foodwise.
Aleswench, you look like my kind of Go Out For Dinner With person. Look us up when you're in town!

Welcome to the boards...and welcome to your friend Holly also. We shared notes last nite and she seems to be a really great friend to have !
Ask most any questions you may have, even the 3 Stooges are known to give good 'Foodie' replies when they focus on food topics. (Well one of them stays on topic almost all of the time, but VE VATCH DA ODDER TWO WERRY CLOSELY!!)

Thank you, Al - I am enjoying myself hugely. As Holly will tell you, I care not a pfennig for staying on topic - but I'll do my best for you.
Howdy, DT! I have spent an hour reading through and I am hungry.
But what do I want? Posole? Enchiladas? I almost stopped at Jorge's for some tacos while I was out earlier, but passed them by and now , after reading these boards, I am starving.
